Sporting facilities to be created at schools level ,KP
PESHAWAR:26 April: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government on Wednesday approved the long-awaited sports policy to promote sports as an industry and encourage and award the sportsmen.

The province is first to form the sports policy after the devolution of powers to the province after the passage of the 18th Constitutional Amendment.

The draft of the policy was approved at the Cabinet meeting, held with Chief Minister Pervez Khattak in the chair.

Under the policy, public and private sector educational institutions would serve as nurseries for the promotion of sports and sporting facilities would be created at schools level.

Sports would be given the status of an industry and large scale competitions would be conducted for the talent hunt. At provincial level, sports management committees would be formed for encouraging sportsman and a mechanism would be evolved for the provision of facilities, infrastructure, encouragement and award to the sportsman.

Promoting sports at grassroots level is one of the prime objectives of the policy.

The policy pushed for ‘Sport-for-All” model to ensure higher youth participation in sports. Under this model, the government would peruse various initiatives to encourage the kids, youth, women and provide more opportunities to disabled people to be involved in recreational and sports activities.

It said that Pakistan ruled various sports disciplines, like it won the national game Hockey World Cup for a record four times, three gold medals in Olympics, various Asian titles, cricket and dominated squash for decades till the 90s but went down in all sports in the last few decades due to absence of a sports policy and a clear direction.

It added the country had done all this despite limited sports infrastructure and proper coaching.

On the other hand, it said countries around the globe have been focusing on improving “sport-for-all” and youth policies during this period. It said these initiatives are key to improving community health, physical activity levels and community involvement.

It said that sensing a need for revival of lost glory of the country in various sports, the province felt the need to draft a comprehensive policy to put the country back on the right track by promoting sports infrastructure, involving youth in sports activities and assist best athletes to continue to reach new peaks of excellence to increase the pool of talent from which world champions would emerge.

It said the government is pursuing the “sports-for-all” model for all the youth in order to have their higher participation in sports.

To provide better sports facilities and level playing field to youth in rural areas and to bring the talented youth to the mainstream and get the opportunity to represent the province at national and country at international level competitions is one of the major goals of the policy.

Under the policy, proper infrastructure would be developed at the union council and tehsil levels so the youth of rural and far-flung areas would get the opportunity to play on proper sports facilities and hone their skills.

It said the government has enhanced the sports budget to Rs2 billion annually besides spending Rs1.5 billion for youth welfare and Rs500 million on tourism and culture activities.

Under the policy, the government would sponsor recreational and fitness opportunities for youth to create a desire among them to lead a healthy lifestyle. The government would also educate the teachers to incorporate physical activities and healthy lifestyles in their classrooms.

The initiative included funding physical education in the schools to ensure that youth receives proper education on how to live a healthy life and continue their activities after completing school level studies.

The government also planned to acquire the services of former athletes who would visit various schools across the province and impart skills to students in their respective sports disciplines, maintain fitness and career building skills and others.The news.

federal govet provided education on doorstep of needy children
Islamabad :26 April: The National Commission for Human Development on Wednesday launched a countrywide programme to educate one million out of school children under the auspices of the American Refugee Council.

During the initiative launching ceremony at Academy of Educational Planning and Management (AEPAM), NCHD chairperson Razina Alam Khan said it was encouraging to observe that the issue of the out of school children was drawing the attention of planners, donors and governments.

"The federal government has taken effective steps to handle the issue and therefore, the number of out of school children has reduced from 26 million to 22.6 million. we, the NCHD, has extensively addressed the issue with the help of other stakeholders and provided education on the doorstep of the needy and underprivileged children," she said.

The NCHD chairperson said she was delighted to see a commitment for educating one million out of school children affirmed by one of the friendly state of Qatar. "The education data shows that 49 per cent girls were out of school compared with 40 per cent such boys. Collectively, more than 40 per cent of the children aged 5-16 years are still not going to the school in the country. This situation halts the national progress and development and decreases literacy rate," she said.

Ms Razina Alam urged all stakeholders to step forward and complete that unfinished agenda. "The NCHD believes that the collective and collaborative efforts of all can contribute a lot to achieve 100 per cent enrolment rate," she said.

The NCHD chairperson said the organisation had already been working with the JICA, AQAL, Unicef, Unesco, Hashoo Foundation, Idara Taleem-o-Aagahai for ASER Report, Benazir Income Support Programme and Pakistan Human Development Fund on the issue and that the new collaboration with the ARC would help provide free education to one million OOSC.

She said the NCHD annually conducted a massive enrolment campaign in 124 districts of the country to have an access to all out of school children. "We've set up 5,949 feeder schools across the country and pioneered 100 madrassa schools in FATA, ICT, AJK and GB," she said.

Ms Razina Alam called for a detailed analysis of out of school children to complement work on it in all provinces and areas to scale up evidence based education activities and thus, ensuring that all children have an access to quality education.

She said the National Training Institute of the NCHD was established to ensure quality education by conducting research studies, capacitating staff in literacy and non-formal education, and developing need-based teaching learning resource packages for the NFE and literacy programmes.

The NCHD chairperson said the NTI working under the Federal Ministry of Education and Professional Training was preparing the National Plan of Action (2018-2025) to help policymakers and education experts better address the issues and challenges of the education system.

Speaking on the occasion Federal Minister for Education and Professional Training, Muhammad Baligh Ur Rehman said that the present government is keen for the promotion of quality education and enhancement of literacy rate in the country.

He said that the out of school children is one of the challenges but it is due to the steps taken by the present government that the number of the out of schools children has dropped phenomenally and enrolment in schools increased in the country.

Among other speakers were Ambassador of Qatar Saqr Bin Mubarak al Mansouri, federal education secretary Akbar Hussain Durrani, joint educational adviser Muhammad Rafique Tahir and BECS director general, who appreciated the efforts of the NCHD in the field of literacy and non-formal education.

The NCHD chairperson acknowledged the support of the education ministry and thanked all stakeholders for joining hands with her organisation to further the cause of education in the country.The news.
A conference, entitled ‘Right to Education at Karachi University
Karachi:26 April:The National Education Policy 2017, as well as that of 2009, is in contradiction to the Constitution of Pakistan. The policy also violates international covenants and curbs the right to religious freedom, especially of the minorities.
These views were expressed by academicians, law experts and human right defenders at a conference, entitled ‘Right to Education without Discrimination’, organised by the Centre for Social Justice in collaboration with Pakistan Study Centre, Karachi University, and the Peace and Development Organisation held at KU on Wednesday.

The discussion was led by panelists Dr Syed Jaffar Ahmed, former director of Pakistan Study Centre; Rana Asif Habib, head of the Initiator Human Development Foundation; Peter Jacob, director of the Centre for Social Justice; and Dr Safia Urooj of KU.

Dr Jaffar Ahmed said the vision of the founders of Pakistan was based on a modern and sovereign state. The media was playing a role in spreading religious extremism and hatred, and a class-based society made a class-based education system, he remarked.

The panelists said the education policy of 2009 not only violated articles 20, 22 and 25 of the constitution, but also contravened international human rights law as described in the constitution under articles 14 and 29 on the rights of the child. The policy also violated Article 13 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights as well as Article 18 (4) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

They said the government had adopted the National Education Policy 2017 that was blind towards incorporating diversity and needs of minorities.

The panelists said the new policy relied on articles 31 and 25-A (Islamic way of life, right to free and compulsory education) of the constitution, but it ignored the constitutional guarantees under articles 20, 22 and 36 for religious freedom, safeguards against discrimination in educational institutions with respect to religion and protection of the rights of religious minorities.

The policy was a replica of the previous one in the sense that it failed to curb religious discrimination, they added.

The participants discussed further that the education policy and textbooks in Pakistan contained several discriminations on the basis of religion. As a result, the religious minorities lagged behind in national average in literacy (Christians 11 per cent and Hindus 20 per cent), according to the national population census 1998.

In order to promote religious tolerance, national cohesion and accommodate religious diversity, the speakers and participants urged the federal and provincial governments to consider implementing some key measures as early as possible for improvement in the education system.

They suggested that the Quaid-e-Azam’s speech of August 11, 1947, to the constituent assembly should be included in the syllabi for schools and colleges. They asked the governments to ensure that the Supreme Court’s order of June 19, 2014, for promoting peace and a culture of religious and social tolerance was complied with. It was also demanded that the federal and provincial governments should provide a special educational plan to enhance literacy among the religious minorities and other groups, keeping in view their economic and social marginalisation.

Furthermore, the educational institutions nationalised for around 35 years should be provided with adequate compensatory funds to enhance their capacity and operations.

In order to make the policy of a 5 per cent job quota successful, there was a need to introduce an equivalent quota in admissions for the minority students, especially in colleges, universities and technical training institutes, they said. They suggested that the teachers’ training, school environment and co-curricular activities should be designed to maintain respect for all religious traditions, values and acceptance for religious diversity in Pakistan.The news.

He said the late Dr Ziauddin Ahmed’s role and contribution to the field of education and societal development could never be neglected. He told the students that it was their first responsibility to make Pakistan a better place to live.

Ziauddin University Chancellor Dr Asim Hussain advised the graduating students not to forget the role of their teachers who enabled them to gain what they did from the varsity. “The students must be indebted to their parents not only for providing quality education but for their hard work and sacrifices.”

In his message to the graduating students, he asked them to work hard, rather work in the smartest way and constantly remain aware of all the changes taking place globally. Hussain said Pakistan at present was passing through an extremely critical period, both economically and politically.

He believed that it was the need of the hour to contribute to efforts to bring about drastic development by restructuring the entire social structure of the country with the weapons of education, collectivism and unity.

Earlier, Prof Dr Pirzada Qasim Raza Siddiqui, vice chancellor of Ziauddin University, said the university provided an excellent learning environment and advanced resources via contemporary learning methodologies.

IBA Dean and Director Dr Farrukh Iqbal, Alumni Representative on the Board of Governors Shahid Shafiq, associate deans, IBA management and faculty and alumni from 1966 to date attended the event.

The award ceremony commenced with a welcome address from Malahat Awan, head of Alumni & Corporate Relations, IBA Karachi, who emphasised the role of alumni in the welfare of its alma mater.

She announced the commencement of a need-based scholarship from alumni and encouraged the audience to give back to society through educating needy students.

Everything is free for students, including uniforms and their families rations
Rawalpindi:26 April: Celebrating certain anniversaries it gives a great deal of pleasure when the people who are celebrating have something to be proud of and that can be said about the Rah-e-Amal school for underprivileged children. Twenty years of dedicated work by volunteers has seen many children rise from the shackles of poverty to live a better life, all because they have received a decent education - not to say anything about the moral guidance that has made them better human beings.

To mark this important anniversary the school had been decked out with tents, balloons and buntings. The teachers were dressed in their best; the children were excited especially those taking part in the skits; donors who could manage to attend were present; music blared – all this contributing to the celebratory atmosphere.

The programme began with a reading from the holy Quran. With teachers Farhana and Faiza acting as MC’s, songs and skits were presented by the different classes; a couple of speeches were made by students who voiced an opinion about their school, while the closing item was a speech by a young man who urged the children to study hard, giving his own example of what he had achieved. He also sang a hymn (naat) and had a good voice.

In conclusion, founder of the school, Zehra Fasahat said she was happy to be celebrating with the students as their smiling faces made her feel content that Allah had given her the will, as well as the opportunity, to go ahead with the mission of educating children. The program ended with the singing of the Rah-e-Aman song and the national anthem. Refreshments were served to everyone and the children went home carrying their goody bags, while volunteers and donors discussed how quickly twenty, satisfying years had gone by.

Zehra Fasahat, a gentle, soft spoken woman has a heart of gold - she understands the value of restoring dignity to the vulnerable, especially children who are the future of our world. Twenty years ago she saw about a dozen children squabbling near a garbage heap over who had the right to collect scraps from it. Calling them over she told them it was wrong to fight and sharing was good as there was enough for everyone. Suddenly, as if on their own momentum, the words poured out of her mouth. “Do you want to learn how to read and write?” she asked. “If so, come tomorrow morning and I will teach you.” Next morning five children turned up at her doorstep - two girls and three boys. The first lesson was in cleanliness, as faces and hands were washed and hair combed before other subjects were tackled. With these humble beginnings began the success story of the school. As the word spread more children joined; volunteers offered their help and donors (read family and friends) began to contribute.

Everything is free for the students, including uniforms and their families also get monthly rations when possible, especially during Ramazan. After doing their matriculation, some bright children have been given scholarships to study further and are now successfully employed. While many volunteers have come and gone constant who also need to be recognised are Razia Hayat; Samia Omar Khittab; Uzma Azam; Maimoona Gulraiz and Dr Tahmeena Azhar - especially the first two ladies.The news.
